Decorative Candle

Good Morning Crafters

Our inspiration post has gone live on our Challenge Blog
The theme this month is Summer Holiday or Create a Scene.  One lucky winner who has used Imagination Crafts products wins £40.  We look forward to seeing your entries.

Today we have a beautiful tutorial by Avril

Imagination Crafts Products Used
Clematis Decoupage Stamp Set


Stamp the clematis onto tissue paper with Memento Black Ink


Colour the clematis with alcohol ink pens, Avril has used Promarkers, on the tissue paper.


Closely cut out the clematis, ready to transfer onto the candle


Cover the image with wax paper (baking paper), wedge the candle between wads of kitchen roll to keep wax paper and image secure. Use heat gun to adhere image to candle.


To finish off adhere a butterfly.


A beautiful idea and will make a fabulous gift.

Enjoy your weekend and we hope you have enjoyed the tutorial.
